Catfish and Unclaimed Property: Expect the Unexpected

Session Description

There are many similarities between dealing with unclaimed property and fishing for catfish. Doing either incorrectly can be a painful experience. Unclaimed property is not a tax and, for this reason, the compliance is often forgotten. States are eager to capture these additional funds and audits are generally conducted by third party contingent fee auditors. Many states have changed their laws during the 2017 legislative session and this presentation will provide an overview of the major changes. Knowing how to handle unclaimed property or an angry catfish isn’t difficult if you understand the rules.
